My son and I used to be so close. It's been just me financially while his dad pops in as a hero broke and never hoed with braces medical insurance his first car I bought it all now he is 17 an it's like I am the enemy! How do I talk to him without always ring the bad guy

One think I have learned while raising my three children, now 30, 36 and 40. Is they will ALWAYS.. I mean ALWAYS take things out on the ones they LOVE THE MOST.. why? Because they know its "safe".. they know how much you love them. It's not on purpose.. I think it just "IS". Believe me, he hasn't forgotten who has been there for him all these years. He is 17 and that alone can account for some of his behavior. Not that its right. You are right! You are the one who has been giving him boundaries, etc. Dad pops in every so often and probably seems like a GREAT guy (NO responsibilities) ! Its such a familiar story.. Hang in there.. He is probably very angry about his dad.. taking it out on the one he loves best in this world and can RELY on!
